I have a side by side fridge though. It is the icemaker that occasionally tries to "prop" it open.

Well, in that case, you really do not want to use that freezer for long term storage. My experiance has been 4-6 weeks max. The reason? That freezer goes through a defrost cycle to keep it "frost free".

The food seems to change flavors in 6 weeks. Ice cream changes texture.

If you get a "deep freeze" look at a chest freezer. Up-rights loose too much temp. When you open the door all the cold flows out. But, that's a personnal choice. If you have a bad back, the up-right may be a better choice.
